I also had a lovely walk about 3/4 mile from the Prudhoe Bay Hotel to Conam to pick up the company car that I left there this morning for service. That was quite an adventure in itself. It was 10 below zero with a 20 knot wind blowing. The wind chill was about -40 but fortunately it was to my back most of the way. It was snowing hard, and very drifted along the side of the road. Sometimes I was walking on glare ice and other times in snow almost to the top of my boots. It gave me a renewed appreciation for our company car. I would hate to have to walk back and forth to work every night in the winter. And honestly, it is pretty much always winter up here.
The training schedule says 8 miles for tomorrow. I'm going to try to stick with the schedule for the rest of this week. We had an interesting conference call with the rest of our Team In Training Flex team that is going to Paris. It got me excited for the trip. It hasn't quite hit me yet that I am actually going to Paris in a little over one week!
Also, Team In Training has already brought in close to $200,000 for this Paris Marathon. Awesome!
